Asus Zenbook UX31A Review

23 April 2013
  • Summary: The Asus Zenbook UX31A has everything we’ve ever wanted in an ultrabook. It has stunning good looks, is extremely powerful, has long-battery life and is very light. It really doesn’t get any better than this, which is why we’re going to have an extremely hard time giving it back once our time with it is over. One of our few concerns with the Zenbook was its edges as when we were working with it, we felt the edges of the palm rests could be a tad smoother.

Asus' Zenbook Prime UX31A

17 September 2012
  • Summary: Over the past few pages, we've seen that the Zenbook Prime's display really does live up to the hype. We've seen that this sexy little ultrabook is just as fast, if not faster, than its Sandy Bridge-powered predecessor. (Its graphics performance is certainly a step above the previous generation, even if it's not anywhere near good enough to play the latest games at decent settings. Casual titles and older games would be a better fit for this machine.

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A Review - Execution Matters

PC Perspective
28 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I often think of ASUS as the PC’s answer to Apple. Their products are not up to Apple’s rigorous engineering, nor is the customer service as accessible, but ASUS does offer a number of products that were obviously designed to meet a set of high standards. I’ve always enjoyed the company’s G-Series gaming laptops, ultraportables like the U33 Bamboo and high-end multimedia laptops like the N53 and N56.

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A

20 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Do we like the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A? Oh yes, in fact we love it. It has superb build quality, one of the most elegant and attractive designs on the market and that 1080p IPS display will spoil you. The MacBook Air's display will be a let down, and even the super color-accurate Sony Vaio Z 1080p display will seem weak for viewing angles and brightness. The much more typing-friendly backlit keyboard, fast performance and dual USB 3.0 ports seal the deal.
  • Pros: Sleek, light, goregous, 1080p matte display, backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: As with many Ultrabooks, RAM and hard drive aren't upgradable. Some light bleed in display edges.

Review Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Ultrabook

16 August 2012
  • Summary: Super Ultrabook. After Asus already spearheaded netbooks a few years back with the legendary Eee PCs, the Taiwanese manufacturer is trying for a repeat performance with Ultrabooks. Their cards are good, their first Zenbook editions were already ahead of much of the competition and they look to raise the bar on premium Ultrabooks with the introduction of the latest models from their stable.
  • Pros: robust, high quality aluminum unibody case, pleasant keyboard with back light, excellent display, blazing application performance thanks to a fast SSD, very quiet during every day use, good sound, good battery runtime, The Zenbook Prime UX31A is the logical evolution of the UX31E, in which Asus does almost everything right
  • Cons: no DisplayPort connector, no Gigabit LAN, max. 4GB RAM, different SSDs installed

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A review

10 August 2012
  • Summary: The Asus Zenbook UX31A represents an incremental evolution over the original UX31E, but the improvements are welcome. The Ivy Bridge CPU and high resolution panel finally realises the potential of the sleek chassis. The touchpad is much improved, though the keyboard is the same flat, Chiclet style. The real star of the show, however, is the 1080p LCD display.
